The average hotel stay in Manhattan during Super Bowl weekend was around $327 a night earlier this week, with most hotels requiring a two-night minimum stay. That compares with hotels in normally budget-priced Jersey City and Union City in New Jersey charging more and many requiring a three-night minimum stay.
The Denver Post, home newspaper of the Denver Broncos, quotes an Orbitz senior editor as recommending Super Bowl fans stay in Manhattan and take public transportation to MetLife Stadium. NYC on the Cheap agrees.
